Was it just me, or did Kerry look very haggard? He appeared pale, eyes sunken, the perfect picture of exaustion. Bush on the other hand, seemed like a teenage class clown with his expressions.
Anyway, on the substantive issues, I thought Bush cleaned Kerry's clock. Lines that allude to Kerry's desire of short-term popularity over security on the international stage hit home and went unanswered. And on the domestic side, Bush just let Kerry go on and on about all his promises that the president wouldn't match him on - and then Bush called him out on being for a rough form of socialized medicine.
I'm wondering if this will stop the bleeding - I think so.
